Ah, ça aussi j'ai (ton P'tit bricolage d'hiver) et même, je crois que le toit est recouvert de zinc, non ? Tu en veux un peu ? Après, je pourrais les convaincre de faire un jardin sur le toit ! Langue tirée 

Incroyable. Ils sont tous plus bobos les uns que les autres dans cet immeuble (moi aussi sans soute !) mais dans la cour, pas une seule plantation de légume ou herbe pour tout le monde, pas de compost, rien. Les "plantes de la concierge" et les vélos : c'est déjà pas mal. A la parisienne ! En pleurs Oh, je chougnasse aujourd'hui !

Owning and Using an Austrian Scythe

How Austrian scythes changed my life, by Simon Fairlie

scyther.gif

 

All flesh is grass. Your breakfast, whether it is composed of oats, cornflakes, rice-cakes, toast, sugar, milk, butter, eggs, bacon, or sausages, will be grass, or derived from grass-fed creatures.
If you have a holding, hay is the most biodiverse product you are ever likely to produce on it. Unless you have a rye grass and clover ley, your hay is likely to contain between 20 and 100 different species. Some of them (for example, bracken or ragwort) will be undesirable, but provided there is a basic content of palatable grasses, and a measure of clover or other legumes, then the variety will add to the quality of the hay.

Grass is easy to produce in England's green and pleasant land. The wet, temperate climate and sweet soils in the south and west make the UK one of the best countries in the world for grass and hay production. Grass just grows; the more you graze or mow it, the better it grows; and grazing and mowing, plus a light harrowing, is all you really need to do to it. Because grass is an ecosystem, not a species, it doesn't fall ill, even if you starve it of nutrients, it just changes in species mix.

Blades

Our blade selection ranges from light grass blades to mid-weight ditch blades to heavy bush blades. All are manufactured in Austria and are available in various lengths. All of these blades (with the exception of bush blades) are versatile and can be called on to do more than just one task. This array of blades and their descriptions may bewilder you. If you'd like some friendly advice and guidance in making a choice, please email or phone and we'll be happy to help. You may also refer to our articles:


Scythe Supply blade

The Blue and Gold standard blades are made for ScytheSupply by an Austrian company which has been forging scythe blades since 1540. These light weight blades are most often used for mowing hay fields, grain harvesting, and maintaining lawns. Individually hand hammered and tensioned they are beautifully balanced tools. They peen easily and hold a keen edge nicely so are often recommended to novice mowers. The edge of these blades has been well prepared by the factory but will require final sharpening before use. The tang angle of these blades makes them suitable for use on our bent or straight snaths.The 22"/55cm, 24"/60cm and 26"/65cm lengths are included in our standard Outfit package.

The grass pattern is available in 24"/60cm and 26"/65cm lengths. The 22"/55cm blade is a light weight ditch blade. It mows grass as well as the grass blades but is stronger for mowing where grass is intermixed with heavier weeds and light brush or year old saplings. Its short length makes it excellent for use for trimming along fences, stone walls, foundations, around garden beds and plants, or in confined areas. For a shorter length please refer to our 18"/45cm light ditch blade listed below.

We are also stocking grass blades in longer lengths of 28"/70cm, 32"/80cm and 36"/90cm. For a discussion on choosing a length click here.

Price for 22"/55cm, 24"/60cm or 26"/65cm size: $65.
Long blade prices: 28"/70cm: $70, 32"/80cm: $75, 36"/90cm: $80. order


Redtenbacher Ditch  blade

The new ScytheSupply heavyweight ditch blades are in stock. These versatile blades can adapt to a variety of chores. All lengths make excellent grass blades suitable for mowing in open spaces, harvesting grain or cover crops. Ditch blades are especially built to handle mowing in fields where the grass is intermixed with heavy weeds, brush, berry canes, and young saplings up to ¼” in diameter at the base. As the name implies these blades were developed for clearing the light, mixed growth found along regularly maintained roadside ditches. These blades must be used on our bent snath. Because of the lower tang angle they do not function well on a straight snath.

Scythe Supply Ditch blades are available in four lengths: 24"/60, 26"/65cm, 28"/70cm, 30"/75cm.

If you prefer a shorter, lighter weight Ditch blade please consider our 18"/45cm Ditch blade or the 22"/55cm Ditch blade.

For a left hand blade consider the 26"/65 cm Ditch. We also have the 22"/55 cm and 24"/60 cm Ditch/Grass blades in Left.

Ditch blade pricing: 24"/60cm & 26"/65cm – $60; 28"/70cm - $65; 30"/75cm - $70. order


Image of two ditch bladesFor those of you who need a short, tough blade.

Several years ago we offered an 18"/45cm Ditch blade manufactured by the Redtenbacher Company of Austria. Because of its popularity and limited supply the stock ran out quickly. We have found a new supply of blades recently manufactured to the original specifications and are pleased to offer these superior blades again.
